Quadratic Equation program for the 32S(II)

Overview

Usage: XEQ E, enter A, R/S, enter B, R/S, enter C, R/S. The roots are returned on the stack. The program will halt with a SQRT(NEG) message if b^2-4ac is negative - so reals only. Written by myself. I tried to optimize the program by using equations for subexpressions, but the result was always larger in size and slower in execution.
